On the 9th, 10th and 11th of July the Belgrade feature documentary film festival Magnificent7 organises a high quality programme of music documentary films. This is how it is announced on the website:
”“The Magnificent Seven” at BELEF is an exclusive summer edition of the modern theatrical documentary anthology as a special festival’s presentation within Belgrade summer art festival BELEF 2012 – THE FESTIVAL OF FESTIVALS. The festival’s program is always made up of contrasting creations, without limitations regarding theme and style, where only high artistic criteria plays a role. But for “The Magnificent Seven” at BELEF we have created a selection framework - films that in different ways deal with the phenomenon of music. Music documentary is one of the most evolved forms of documentary filmmaking and some of the greatest film directors like Wim Wenders and Martin Scorsese have given their contribution to this genre. Our intent is to present those films which explore the complicated role music plays in our individual and collective life from a sociological, psychological, and anthropological standpoint, films which in surprising manner confirm the exquisite importance of music in contemporary and traditional culture.
Before each projection begins the audience will be given details about the film, it’s topic and the authors. There will be no entrance fee for any of the programs.
Among the films are neo-classics like “Saudade do Futuro” (2000) by Marie-Clémence and César Paës and “Lagrimas Negras” (1998, PHOTO) by Sonia Herman Dolz, the latter that for this blogger is a much better artistic film about Cuban music than the one of Wim Wenders. Also to be screened are the two Dutch “The Sound of Bandoneon” (Jiska Rikels, 2011) and “About Canto” (Ramón Gieling, 2011).
